What Causes Jaw Pain?

The masseter and temporalis muscles are responsible for a great deal of jaw movement. These are overactive during constant clenching of the jaw and grinding of the teeth (technically known as bruxism).

When these muscles are overactive, they can cause tension to form in the area, including tension in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). The TMJ connects the jaw to the sides of the skull. This constant stress on the TMJ creates jaw pain.

Your Jaw Pain Treatment

Botox has been found to be a very effective way to treat jaw pain. Botox is an injectable product used to relax the muscles that control facial movement.

Injecting Botox treatment into the masseter and temporalis muscles causes temporary muscle weakness, helping jaw tension to dissipate. In this way, TMJ disorders are relieved.

Botox also prevents further over-clenching of the muscle and grinding of the teeth, thus avoiding greater TMJ damage.

Jaw pain is often relieved within a week of treatment, with improvement within the first few days. Repeat treatments are necessary to continue to prevent future jaw pain.
